I planned a menu for the week and wrote my grocery list.  I went to go get dressed and realized I have no clean clothes.  Laundry.  That's another one of those systems of mine that have broken down.  Oh well, one thing at a time.  Clothes are in the wash, and when they're dry, I'll go shopping.

I'm actually looking forward to having some real food to eat again. I know the effort is worth it.

A few of the items on this week's menu are:
  1. Garlic herbed tilapia, roasted broccoli, mashed potatoes.
  2. Chicken Florentine Lasagna
  3. Country style ribs, sweet mashed potatoes, and  green beans
I'm only planning half a week for now because I'm planning another trip to grocery store on Monday.  When I plan my menu, I only plan 5 meals because I account for the fact that I get tired of cooking every night of the week and at least one night of the week everyone tends to do their own thing or eat leftovers.

I also planned for more green juice, and I'm going to get back to drinking Kefir everyday.  I'm hoping that will help with some of the, um, gastric symptoms I've been experiencing as of late. 

I'm going to try quinoa for breakfast.  I need to find some good protein for the morning.  I wish I were not allergic to eggs because I sure love a good omelet with spinach, onions, and feta.  Maybe I'll like quinoa just as much. Sigh.


  1. Have you considered adding protein powder to your green smoothie? It is a simple and effective way to boost your AM protein intake. There are loads of protein powders out there, take your pick!

    You could also add some silken tofu to your green smoothie, with a bit of frozen banana to sweeten it up. That would also thicken your smoothies and make them more satisfying as a complete meal. With the addition of some oatmeal powder to the drink, or maybe an actual slice of toast on the side, you'll have veggies, carbs, and protein all in your breakfast. :)

    For that matter, you can use tofu in place of egg and use your spinach, onions and feta. Colour them with turmeric and add a pinch of black salt (available in Asian markets) to add that touch of sulfur you get from eggs (if you miss the eggy taste, that will surely put it back in for you), and there you go! An egg-free omelet.
